the first debate was hitting romney left and right with the zingers. >> well, governor romney is right, you are familiar with jobs being shipped overseas because you invested in companies that were shipping jobs overseas. >> jon: boom! >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. (cheers and applause). >> jon: bam! >> the biggest geopolitical threat facing america you said russia. not al qaeda, you said russia. and the 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back. (laughter and applause). >> jon: well, that was a little hackie. i mean that was -- that was a it will roasty. i wouldn't (bleep) your foreign policy with margaret thatcher's (bleep), come on! hickory dickory dock, your geopolitical understanding can suck my -- (laughter) sorry. that's -- no, please don't because then i'll do it again some night. (laughter) so the president had a good night. must have felt pretty confident because he was letting his professor or y'all side shine through. especially when it came to one cou
is about -- right now he's imperative to appeal to blue state voters and the romney imperative is to sort of make obama look bad and win over swing state voters. it's another example. we've seen it a few times this year with christie actually, the same dynamic. i can think back earlier when romney was trying to stone wall on taxes, and christie was put on national television and christie quickly realized he doesn't want to be making excuses for mitt romney not releasing his taxes. it's going to go over horribly in new jersey. doesn't look good, period. it was christie much all people who said, you know what, mitt romney should release his taxes. we've seen this a few times from christie. his brand is dependent on being seen as a bipartisan guy. you can't do anything in this situation except working cooperatively and praising president obama if you're going to be a bipartisan guy. >> let me go to another point here. while i'm talking about romney, steve, he very clearly said that fema -- last year he said fema could be privatized or handled by the states. today he wouldn't even answer ques

was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at these various places too often, people will say he is pandering. political pandering because these
in their right mind think that mitt romney isn't going to appoint two, maybe three, supreme court justices if he's elected and that those supreme court justices will have as a litmus test for their being nominated that they are going to overturn roe v. wade? >> you're right on three points, michael is wrong on all three. thank you. we gave you a bad hand to play with. we gave you a couple deuces and -- a bad night for you. you had a bad hand. it wasn't your hand. when we return, some of the incredible pictures and reporting from hurricane sandy. i grew up in on the jersey shore. this is "hardball," the place for politics.

they are not playing politics. >> right. >> he is not standing on ceremony, what a great, great opportunity to show really that they can work together in times of emergency -- >> unlike mitt romney. >> well mitt romney doesn't have any opportunity right now to look presidential. he has nothing to do except for -- >> we're just talking about he is calling these things disaster relief when they are clearly political events. >> exactly. >> obama: i have spoken to all of the governors in all of these states we have pre-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema. hey, don. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. i have a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. t
yesterday. come on. >> cenk: also, if they want to get rid of gridlock, endorsic romney is right. the republicans will do what they want, and then gridlock goes away, but they're not pointing at the people who caused the gridlock in the first place. >> cenk: you're not a plumber. you're not a dentist this is your job. and it sounds like a great idea, let the oil companies run our energy policies, awesome. let's the banks run our financial policies, awesome. no things that are disappointing, and things we can't understand, here is a prediction on what is going to happen on the election. >> the burden of proof is against you that you're going to get re-elected. if the president is sitting at 47% at polls, boy i would be shocked if he won. >> cenk: you would be shocked? we just showed you that he has a 95% chance of having a lead in states that would give him 277 electoral votes. michael, what's wrong with these people? does he understand politics at all. >> i hear what he's saying. i'm not depending him but its surpriseing to see an incumbent president win at 47% in an election. bu
't think yet is the right >> you know, frankly, if you're mitt romney, you're behind. he's looking at the map and the days left in the campaign and he's thinking i have to do something. >> really? >> i think they felt pressure to get back into campaign mode because they can't cede the week to the president dealing with the response and romney just being silent. i agree with you, i find it in poor taste, but i think they felt that pressure of we're behind. >> the romney campaign said the event where they saw people giving rice krispies and tins of food, and thas an honorable gift of people who are kind and wish to be compassionate, but the romney campaign says that that was a relief rally, not a campaign event. >> well, they say that, but, of course, it was in the same place as the original rally in battleground ohio -- >> a slight problem. >> with the same cast of characters. >> another problem. >> they got the political benefit of releasing the statement saying we're not going to do any campaign events but they said we're going to do this one rally in battleground ohio. >> what's
campaigns right now? >> the romney campaign is going back to full-time campaign mode. i think they were in a battleground state today with governor romney but didn't hold a campaign event per se with the relief event that they hold. again, being in ohio obviously has a campaign aspect to it. he's resuming campaigning tomorrow and has a full schedule in florida tomorrow. president plans to tour the disaster areas in new jersey with governor christie tomorrow afternoon, and then i think with that -- there had been some question it was my understanding they were working on this planning. the question was whether new jersey would be ready to receive the security entourage that comes with the president tomorrow or wait until nurse? the fact they're doing it tomorrow indicates the presid t president's campaign schedule is likely to resume thursday. >> anyone that predicted romney would campaign is right. >> more on that later, toure. lower manhattan saw a record storm system last night. a picture is worth a thousand words. this tells that story. we had the last high tide of potential concern
to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. charles: all right guys, ford didn't take a bailout and amazing numbers, general motors in the meantime, losing market share, bogged down by the volt, bogged down by a pension, bogged down by government interference, i don't know. >> all of solvable exception the pension problem. they didn't go through a regular structured bankruptcy which is what romney said they could do. yeah, but governor romney there was no private finance, remember the financial markets were collapsing and yet if you read his op-ed and i did the other way, 2008 op-ed put it in restructured bankruptcy and then have government-- >> as a back stop. >> a lot of conservatives don't like that, but you can see what he was talking about. charles: it would have worked, i agree. >> and what's key tt bankruptcy, it would have lowered their labor costs and would have been a requirement in the bankruptcy they're at $80 an hour and now at 60 when the competition is 40. ford is doing better versus what chrysler is doing. look what happened with chrysler, they'r
, romney tied right before the election, and politico, the carl rove group, up at eight states including north carolina, not a good sign, and fascinatingly, they are not advertising wisconsin, karl rove thinks it's not going to happen for mitt romney considerably narrowing his options. >> what do you make, mike, of what we were talking about earlier? pennsylvania and minnesota attracting money from both campaigns and valuable time from president clinton? >> yeah, it's insurance by them, but i think you made a great point. the bill clinton in minnesota, an astonishing piece of resources. pennsylvania more just to keep it -- to keep the gap there from narrowing. but two places that obama campaign didn't want to be north carolina, certainly a place for the romney campaign, doesn't want to be. they would love to not have to worry about florida. we saw basically a tie there. they'd love to not be worrying about virginia. they're worrying hard about virginia. >> and north carolina too. mike allen, a look at the playbook, one week until election day. mike, thanks so much. >>> and governor chris
off right at the beginning when mitt romney says i have a plan to help the auto industry. and as it turns out he has no plan. there's nothing on his web site and actually reporters have followed up and they've said could you send us a copy of the plan. and there is no plan. no one's gotten anything. so i guess it is just the idea that -- saying you have a plan is more important than actually having a plan. >> bill: also when he says i have a plan for 12 million new jobs and we haven't seen the plan yet either. on the auto industry, it is kind of late after g.m. and chrysler are already back, right? already back on their feet making bigger profits than ever before and better cars than ever before. it is kind of late to say hey wait, i got a plan. right? >> right. especially if we would have followed mitt romney's suggestions with the auto industry, they wouldn't be around to -- there would be no ability to have a plan to help them because they wouldn't exist anymore. that's the -- the reality is that
that governor romney will go with those states. he does not have them locked in just yet, and you start to talk about ohio, wisconsin, new hampshire, and nevada, they are very favorable for the president right now. it is tough for governor romney. he has got to have a global win. it cannot just be trying to figure out some mix of states to try to get to 270. there is a final push for the country decides they are ready to hire him and fire president obama. tavis: we talked earlier about this notion of being careful, how you walk this tightrope when you have a storm that is vexing so much of the country, but there are some issues in this storm the obama campaign could raise. i suspect they are smart not to raise it. when a candidate says, let's get rid of fema and send the money back to the states, now is theoretically a good time to have the conversation. when a candidate says they made a mockery of global warming and climate change, another issue that could be placed on the docket. i do not know how you do that without being seen as playing politics with the storm, but are these real issues? >>
this passes. >> that's right. while president obama has been off the campaign trail and mitt romney converted a campaign event today into a rereef event, their surrogates have been out there, ann romney, joe biden, michelle obama, bill clinton. their campaigns have continued to run advertising. we've seen solicitations for contributions not to the obama campaign but to the red cross from that massive email list that barack obama has. the campaigns were up and running. they're still doing all the things they normally do. there's a little more sensitivity in the states that are affected by the hurricane but they can't really afford to pull out, to push the pause button. >> ifill: democrats have been saying that mitt romney during the republican primary debates may have said that he would actually cut back on fema which is not as unpopular as it once was. >> he said he wanted to move as much of that responsibility to the states and to private contributions as possible. so he's getting hit for that right now. what would mitt romney's fema look like? would it be as well funded as the current organ
in the time of a national disaster. >> right, congressman ryan and mrs. romney and renaines priebu and dealing with flooding and a whoefl whole host of other issues and our priority is to help those in need and the safety of those who may be in similar trouble still in the aftermath of the storm. there will be time to get back into politics, but, you know, we've got seven days to go. right now for the next 24, 48, 72 hours we need to make sure that we're focused on helping those in need and everything else will take care of itself. >> as we know, that help is going out to fema, mobilizing resources to help the governors impacted by sandy and the people in their states. however last year it was during one of the primary debates where governor romney had this to say about what should happen in fema. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and some people who say, you know, maybe we're learning a lesson that the state should take on more. how do you deal with that? >> absolutely, any time you have occasion to send it back from the federal government and send it back to the states and
who said earlier today, the romney campaign cannot afford to not be come paining right now because if the election ends now -- >> i heard him say that. >> they lose. >> you were right there. >> i think that's exactly the case. they're looking at the numbers in ohio and looking at the numbers in virginia and iowa and wisconsin and still have to move the needle. they have to do something. they can't just go totally dark. >> and he has a sudden affection for fema? you will recall during the republican presidential campaign which is an entirely different campaign from the one we're in now. he had a different view of fema and we have the video and we're going to show you that right now. >> fema is about to run out of money and some people that say do it on a case-by-case basis and some say, maybe we're learning a lesson that the state should take this on. how do you feel like that? >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something back from the federal government and send it to the states that's the right direction. and if you go further and send it back to the private se
, that is the right call. >> reporter: governor mitt romney scheduled a storm relief rally in ohio today. he and paul ryan are urging supporters to donate. >> swing by, give a hand -- >> make sure we do our very best to help those being impacted by the storm. >> anything he says injects pure politics into it. so you want to be careful if you're the romney need to keep an eye on it, obviously. but don't necessarily try to get in front of the story in any way. >> reporter: one week before the election, polls are tied, but campaigning at a standstill. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. >> reporter: families also affected by jobs, but the labor department is telling us this morning that the jobs report, the last one before the election due out on friday, will likely come out on time. they've had people crunching the numbers at home while the federal government has been closed. lynn? >> tracie potts in washington, thanks so much. >>> as we button up this show, obviously a lot of people, we want to extend all of our thoughts to ever
. i said, mr. president, that is the right call. >> reporter: governor mitt romney is at a rally in ohio today. he is urging supporters to donate. >> swing by. give a hand. >> make sure we do our best to help those impacted by the storm. >> anything he says injects politics into it. and so you want to be careful if you're the romney team to keep an eye on it, obviously. but don't necessarily try to get in front of the story. >> reporter: one week before the election, polls are tied, but campaigning at a standstill. >> i'm not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on the families. >> reporter: tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >>> the stock markets are closed for the second straight day. scott mcgrew says officials at the two largest exchanges are working hard to make sure the shutdown does not extend to a third consecutive day. >> good morning. if the markets were closed tomorrow, that would be a problem. tomorrow is the last day of the month. the day the books are closed on stock contracts and portfolios. the nyse is running tests
that comment was more important that mitt romney can't show up on the east coast right now. he has to stay away. >> chris, where does the situation of the campaign stand right now? not the physical portion of it. we know and i'll play sound a little later of bill clinton in minnesota, but the reality in the minds of voters before sandy we were talking 3 to 5% of the undecided population out there. many others had actually put their stake in the ground and know who they are voting for. psychologically combine sandy, where does it stand? is it like christie said? >> i think to a lot of voters, especially in the states affected, virginia, maryland, pennsylvania, ohio, new hampshire shgz connecticut, in all these key states those voters aren't thinking about election day. they're worried about the impact this is having on their families and friends and communities and rightfully so. in terms when you look at it from 20,000 feet, i don't know what the good answer is. i think this freezes things in a lot of ways in terms of where we were in the election. i don't think it gives a candidate an advantag

to view the storm damage from the storm that struck the east coast to thank first responders and romney is sell yuled to have a rally in florida. >> all right. tonight millions without power and neighbors in ruins. the after math of sandy will be felt for days. lets bring in sue for what's ahead. >> yeah, we're going to focus on the northeast and the new jersey coastline into new york city and beyond where they are 8 million people without power. we don't see any major systems affecting them and even though that sandy is making her presence felt. they are going to have cloudy skies. we don't even see any big rain. that will aid in the clean up. we can take this out to the end of the week and the skies will breathen and why there's millions of power lines to be restored and carpets and craps to be cleaned, weather will not be a problem in the next couple of days. well, what about election day? well, we're going to get an idea of what it will look like. i think that we're going to be in good shape. sandy has taken a lot of energy out for the time being. we will start on the west coast and
will make three stops on friday in virginia -- romney will make three stops. >> our coverage continues right now on abc 7 news at 6. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> this is abc 7 news at 6, on your side. >> good evening. 24 hours ago we were bracing for sandia and that now we are cleaning up. >> to our north, there are flooded streets and tunnels. it the main problem in our immediate metro

is the right man to help detroit and fix auto industry. for the next couple days romney will walk a fine line between trying to rally voters and continue the cam pawn stay on the right side of the relief effort. bret? >> bret: carl cameron traveling with the romney campaign. carl, thank you. a mexican man has become the first to be convicted in the death of the u.s. border agent brian terry two years ago. two rifles known as operation fast and furious found at the shooting scene. the suspect pleaded guilty to first degree murder and faces up to life in prison. animal rights activist and dead fish in california, adds up to an amazing story in grapevine. up next, as the storm passes, the relief efforts gear up. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, wh
, then maybe he's not quite as extreme as some people on the right including mitt romney have said. >> you heard him say, chris fugate, not to bring him. chris fugate was jeb bush's hurricane guy. so, you know, for all this talk of obama being so polarizing he hired jeb bush's hurricane expert as his fema executive. >> i think to richard's point, this bipartisan bologna that mitt romney has been proposing over the last few days, is absolutely nonsensical when you look at his record in massachusetts, but also bear in mind mitt romney called republican governors yesterday. the president didn't. he called governors who are in states that are affected. and that's the big difference between these two men. and i think that that's what the audience, the public, sorry, and your audience, alex, are beginning to get hold of. this man is for the whole of america, the whole. >> that's the benefit presidents have. you can take the national perspective, you look like you're an executive at a time of crisis. you can do things. candidates are less on a stage with a microphone talking about doing things. t
says he's more concerned about sandy's impact right now than about next week's election. mitt romney also scrapping his campaign plans for today. the republican presidential nominee and his running mate paul ryan will hold storm relief events instead. their campaign is not saying what those events will involve. yesterday romney asked supporters at some of the rallies to donate to the red cross. >>> governor martin o'malley ordered all early voting stations in the state to close because of sandy. he has ordered early voting through november 2nd to make up for the days. the board of elections postponed early voting in the district today as well. >>> coastal communities are waking up to the heaviest damage this morning. >> erica gonzalez is getting a firsthand look on what kind of impact flooding had on dewey beach, virginia. erica, yesterday you were being swept away by the winds. it looks much calmer this morning. >> reporter: you know, it is much calmer, but the biggest difference this morning is it is about ten degrees cooler or colder this morning than it was yesterday. i'm shiveri
